The Jake Lyons Memorial 'Cancer Sucks' Golf Classic donates 100% of the profits from its annual events to the Colorectal Cancer Alliance.
The Colorectal Cancer Alliance, Inc. is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 corporation. They are the leading national patient advocacy organization dedicated to increasing screening rates and survivorship. Their vision is for a world free of colorectal cancer where education, early detection and treatment lead to survivorship for all.
While colorectal cancer affects the lives of more than 140,000 Americans every year, it is preventable. With this in mind, The Colorectal Cancer Alliance has made it their mission to end the disease within our lifetime.
We are pleased to announce that 100% of the proceeds from the 2018 - 5th Annual Jake Lyons Memorial ‘Cancer Sucks’ Golf Classic aided in furthering research in the area of young onset colorectal cancer.

The 2016 AACR Grants Reception and Dinner was held Tuesday, April 19, 2016, at the Hilton Hotel, New Orleans to honor the recipients and sponsors of AACR Research Grants. We are excited to announce that, in 2016, two 'Never Too Young Coalition' Grants were awarded by the Colon Cancer Alliance. Sarah Stringfield, M.D., University of California, San Diego - Health Sciences, was awarded a grant for her work in comparative metagenomic analysis of healthy versus tumorous tissues from patients who present with colon cancer at a young age. Tatiana Larman, M.D., Johns Hopkins University, was awarded a grant for her work in segmenting out young onset colorectal cancer patents for separate evaluation in a study that looks at ND5 loss as a potential predictor for future therapeutic approaches.
We truly believe that these physician/scientists represent the future of progress in the fight against young onset colorectal cancer.
